Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lays funny Very pretty but find it sort of flipping over. Would have kept it if not for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Design! I have been purchasing Barbara Bixby jewelry for a number of years. When I saw this necklace with the combination of birds, angel wings, and pearls, I knew I had to give it a try. It is a gorgeous piece. However, the birds, accented with sparkling white sapphires constantly flip! You can remedy this problem by using an enhancer in the front of the necklace- but that is something, I believe, that takes away from the simplicity and beauty of this piece itself by taking the focus off of the lovely design elements. Add the "flipping issue to the difficulty of adjusting the rings and enhancer while one is wearing it, and, for me, it is a piece of jewelry that I would not wear very often. Thus mine will be going back to QVC. So I would recommend this necklace with reservations. If you don't mind using an enhancer with this necklace nor if you are not troubled with adjusting it, it is a great piece to add to a collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm In Awe. So Captivating. So Powerful. Dearest Barbara Bixby, I have been struggling over the past year, and you have brought so much excitement to me with your craft. In my eyes, your design work is uncomprable to other contemporary designers in your market. I am a huge pearl girl, and have been searching for a unique strand of white pearls for quite some time. I purchased this Sterling & Pearl Sparrow necklace for my 30th Birthday in March. For me, this necklace represents my connection to two women very, very dear to me, both of whom I have lost within one year of each other several years ago, my grandmothers, Margaret and Agnus. Grams & Granny were amazing women, and I carry them with me always, and when I wear this necklace, my two grandmothers are my two sparrows, watching over me, guiding me, forever close to my heart, and I, the strand of pearls, am the link connecting the two of them. I find so much spiritual meaning and guidance within your jewelry. Both of my grandma's LOVED jewelry, and impressed quality and craftsmanship upon me, which I seek in the jewelry and fashions that I wear. This is why I wear your jewelry, almost exclusively. I have been amassing a small collection of your pieces, and look forward to many more years of your fashions. Thank you for sharing your love of art and spirituality with all of us. *Hugs*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO CURSE ON THIS BLACK PEARL! I bought this in honor of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and Jack Sparrow. Me and my sister are always looking for a signature piece and now I have mine. As a big fan, I really loved the black pearls on the necklace and the sparrows on each side are gorgeous. Great workmanship, fumble alittle switching putting on enhancers, hoping they are very secure. This is my first Bixby piece and I also bought a 16" chain and a dolphin key enhancer, can't wait to wear them, absolutely gorgeous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful But Beautiful design but the clasp was too weak. The clasp easily opened which could cause loss of necklace or charm. High dollar item should have better clasp mechanism

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate looking, feminine and lovely. Black pearls do nothing for my skin tone, so I purchased the white pearls -- it's so great to be able to pick your most flattering color! I love TWO things best about this necklace: 1.) It looks gorgeous on its own, but I LOVE the option of being able to add pendants & charms at 3 separate locations on the necklace. 2.) All of the decoration is breathtaking -- gorgeous birds, gorgeous wings, enchanting touches of gilding. I have TWO minor reservations about this necklace: 1.) I'm a little bit slender, so I wish it also came in a 16 inch length. The 18 inches is long on me, especially since I DO love to wear this necklace with pendants. Happily, I can still make it work for me -- but 16 inches would have been better for me. 2.) At first, I had trouble disconnecting the catches on the rings (which you must do in order to be able to even put the necklace on -- and you also need to do it to add pendants and charms). Primarily, I was frightened that I would do it wrong and break the catch and then I would be stuck with a broken necklace. But I read the questions & answers on this item, watched the QVC video a couple of times, screwed up my courage and gave it a serious try. It worked! MY SUGGESTION: this item should be accompanied with an INSTRUCTION BROCHURE, complete with photo illustrations, showing you exactly how to work the rings. It would be SUCH A SHAME if people sent the necklace back because they were afraid they might break thin rings -- they're actually VERY STURDY and they don't scare me at all anymore! I LOVE THIS NECKLACE. I could NOT be happier with it! Especially since it's given brand new exciting life to all of my pendants!
